Well long put to short Kansas was hit hard I a sure you know. What you dont know is lighting hit the back of the house. Dont think a direct hit, However it did fry some stuff. Three outlets no longer work. Theputer I bought in Januaury when the wife went to Iraq, Fried silly style, Best buy fixin cu it still warantied. I unplugged the big tv and PS3 prior so they ar fine. The Satilite and reicivers survived they just needed reset. A few gizmo's fried too like one personal DVD player a toaster and a few light bulbs. surprising what survived after the loud boombing strike and the beaker box going like mad. Wife was scared POOPLESS, and the kid was non stop crying, Cat was hiddin under couch. ME I was doin the math in my head of how much GREEN I was about to lose. Tornado never came thank god. and I hope ame for all HPFF members. Took a while but I got the oldputer running so pretty much fine here. Well besides the nice puter ut of commision and The dang toaster. How sad that some of the stuf we dont think of but count on daily. OH and the truck was parked on a slight incline facing down hill, yea I think somewere in the area of 60- 80 gallons of water. Had a pool back there. It complementet the lake that appeared straingly at the same time in the bak yard. I should buy a boat.
